Lagerstroemia indica 'Natchez'

Natchez Crepe Myrtle is a small growing, deciduous, multi-stemmed tree with a multitude of white flowers in the summer that are so numerous that they cause the branches of the tree to gracefully weep over. The foliage of the tree turns orangish red in autumn and the bark exfoliates to a beautiful cinnamon color. Many crepe myrtle varieties have pretty bark but this is an outstanding feature on Natchez and the lower branches should be pruned away as to reveal the beauty beneath. Natchez Crepe Myrtle is an excellent selection for use as a specimen in the landscape, on corners of larger buildings, lining a driveway or walkway, or in a mixed shrub border. It is seen often in the landscapes of up-scale shopping centers and entrances to developements and golf courses.
